Educating Alabama's Workforce One by One. Chancellor's Annual Report, 1994-1995. 30th Anniversary Edition.
Gainous, Fred; Romine, Robert J.; Culverhouse, Renee; Dahl, Debbie
The report includes a review of the State Board of Education's benchmarks during the last 30 years and describes the policy development of seven institutional effectiveness measures. Progress reports from each of the major areas served by Alabama's community, junior and technical colleges are covered, including: occupational, vocational and career education; college and university transfer programs; and business and industry development training. The role of this college system in providing labor force training is also examined, specifically in the context of pertinent federal and state legislation including the Carl D. Perkin's Vocational and Applied Technology Act, an articulation bill for general studies transfer qualifications, and the Goals 2000 Educate America Act. The system's seven-point student services counseling model, and the Alabama College System's Student Tracking Placement and Follow-Up Plan pilot programs are described as two ways to promote student retention and institutional research. A list of businesses that have partnered with the system is included, and an index of college locations, addresses and presidents is listed. Testimonial statements and anecdotes from several students, graduates, staff and faculty frame the report. (VF)
